Links for 1 Feb 2008 - 14 Feb 2008
Links of interest for 1 Feb 2008 - 14 Feb 2008:
- Major Linux security hole found - Ooops. This is going to be around for some time and I wouldn't be surpised if a worm is created to capitalise on this vulnerability in the not too distant future.
- How one clumsy ship cut off the web for 75 million people - Just goes to show how fragile the internet really is. Given that it only took a ship to take out most of the emerging markets, imagine the chaos terrorists could cause if they took out the cables for the western world.
- iFixit ? MacBook Air - Man pulls Mac Book Air to pieces. Some people have far too much time and money.
- Microsoft bids $44.6bn! for Yahoo! - Hmmm, I think the regulators may have something to say about this. If it goes ahead, we're pretty much going to end up with a 2 horse search engine race (all others are so far behind it's not worth mentioning).
